Starlock® Push-On Fasteners from Baker and Finnemore
Baker and Finnemore is the manufacturer and major stockholder of Starlock® push on fasteners.
The Starlock® push on fasteners are manufactured from finest quality high carbon steel and are specially heat treated to ensure secure holding quality. Starlock® fasteners simply push on to the shaft to give an instant fix and grip, thus eliminating costly threading and grooving operations. Once fixed in position, the Starlock® push-on fasteners are so secure that they cannot be removed without destruction.
The majority of our Starlocks push-on fastener range can be supplied assembled with a cap to conceal the fixing and enhancing the appearance. A variety of cap styles and materials are available.
You can also ask for custom design push on fasteners for special applications.
Starlock® Push-On Fasteners, External Fixing Washers and Quicklock Fixing Washers.
Starlock® Push on Fasteners are available with or without a decorative cap. The standard dome and standard deep axle caps are manufactured from Stainless steel whilst the extra deep axle cap is manufacture from steel and electro zinc plated. To satisfy customer demands the caps can be made from other metals dependent on material specification and volume required. The caps hide the end of the axle and the Starlock® push on fastener when assembled to provide a cosmetic appearance.
